Sir Trevor [=MacDonald=] was the first black newsreader in the UK and is still going, having come out of retirement to host the revived ''NewsAtTen''.

As well as being the presenter of ''NewsAtTen'', he has presented a number of other shows (''Undercover Customs'', ''Tonight with Trevor [=MacDonald=]'') and hosts awards shows.

He's notable for his distinct voice, [[YetAnotherBabyPanda "And finally"]] and being a generally cool guy.

He's been parodied too - LennyHenry did a memorable parody of him in ''{{Tiswas}}'' ("Trevor [=McDoughnut=]"), and he was also impersonated on ''[[Series/DeadRingers Dead Ringers]]''.

!!Provides examples of:

* AffectionateParody: The aforementioned character of Trevor [=McDoughnut=] on ''Tiswas''. [=McDonald=] evidently saw the funny side himself, because he actually appeared on the show as a guest.
* CoolOldGuy: Definitely counts here. He is a very respected man, to the point he is like StephenFry in that no-one can really say anything bad about him and is instantly recognisable.
* SharpDressedMan: As a news presenter, naturally.
* TenMinuteRetirement: ITV keeps dragging him back to resuscitate their news coverage.
** He's also doing a lot of documentaries now, such as a recent one about the Mississippi.
* YetAnotherBabyPanda: "[[CatchPhrase And finally]]..." Associated with finishing NewsAtTen programmes with a reassuring human interest story.
